Saloon, keepers, bartenders and professional gamblers are, bv a re cent decision of the »overeign grand lodge, I. O. O. F., excluded from membership in the order. One of the best little mining towns in the country, Phillipsburg, is practically dead. The mines are there yet but they are silver and silver ore is almost dross. The Troy Times was one year old last week. It is a good little pa* per in a good town. If Troy sup ports the Times, the Times repays j the investment one hundred per cont. Fort Buford has been abandoned and the garrisou removed to Fort Assinniboine, which pes, is now garrisoned with Ave troops of cav alry and two companies of infantry, all colored. An extra scsion of the TexaB legislature is being held this week, called by the governor for the pur. pose of passing an anti-prize fight ing law. The outcome will be anxiously looked forward to by sporting men. Joe Weir, the villian who out raged the deaf and dumb child at Sand Coulee, got a life sentence last Friday. The country is well rid of him, but it is a pity that the state should have to feed aud clothe such a mortal. The thoughtful citizen of Dupuy er smiles and pat.s himself on the back when he thinks what is in store for this town and the sur rounding country when the miner al wealth to the west and north of us is developed. An eastern paper comments un favorably upon the custom pre vailing in western towns of ringing the curfew at night. The only curfew we have heard ring in west eru towns at night is that which rings when the button is pressed. The Palmer House, a tavern in ' hicago, is sending invitations broadcast to the editors of the country to come there and bavi three square meals per day (or three whole days. That is charitv rightly directed to where it will be appreciated. Something ought to be done, and that quickly, with regard to the gambling law of the state. If gun bling is to be allowed let us have the benetit ol the revenue derived from licenses: if uot, let an exam ple be made of the offenders. A disregarded law is worse than uo law. It is not probable that the land recently bought from the Indians on tho Blackloot reserve will be thrown oped uutil next spring. Surveyor's monuemeuts have to be placed and this work will occupy a month or more and congress does not meet until December. The land comprises nearly (iOO square miles. Heretofore the Piegau half breeds have not been recognized as iLembers of the Piegau tribe, aud have uot received support from the government. By the recent treaty they have beeu granted the rights and privileges of tho ful' bloods, and hereafter they shall be consid ered and treated as Indians proper drawing their proportion of annu ities, cattle and the like, and re ceiviug all the benefits derived by Indiaus from the government. Tho potato crop is very light iu this sectiou this year. The Roc-Ky Mountain Husbandman says j it would be well to leave late crops ! of potatoes in the ground as long ; as it is practical. Potatoes not fully ripe when the vines are killed by the frost seem to r'pon some-i what by being left in the grouud, and this is one of those years whir. it will pay to try this plan, since I there are grave doubts of all the, potato crops in the state being well matured ut this «-riling. Protection a Principle, chief corner stone of the American ' Editor Acantiia —In your last issue you copy from tho Seattle Post Intelligencer, a paper that 1 used to take, that protection to American industries is a principle, uot a theory. I have always held to that. It is the principle, the fundamental principle that under lies the foundation of the American republic. Aye, more, it is the republic. Washington, in his first inaugural message recommended it and all the presidents down to Mar tin VanBuren advocated it. Tbomas Jefferson said in Iiis mes sage iu 1800 that it was indespen sible to pay the national debt and furnish revenue to support the gov- ! eminent. If there was a surplus : over he would use it to build up a navy, improve rivers and harbors, ! make roads and support schools, ; rather than take off the duty, or! prohibition, and give our market | to foreigners. Andrew Jackscn i said it was the duty ol the govern-j j ment t0 protect our home industr- j ies. With our mountains full of i coal and iron, with the cotton and j hemp of the farms, if wo failed, or j a j j j ! ! i ! j For Sale . -Improved ranches iu j the vicinity of Dupuyer.

The j best land iu Teton county Iseapa ble of producing good crops of ; sraa n g ,. a i n anc i an abundance of , wu , be gJ)ld jn lots of fro;ii suit purchaser. I^or further par th-nlnrs enquire at this ofTW*. neglected to profit by these bless and gave our market to foreigners, we were not worthy of the ' bless ings and protection of almighty God. Now we have the record of over 100 years of the marvelous prosper ity of this government under the benign inf'uence of protection to home industries and the utter fail ure to ruu the government under a free trade policy, yet men will preach and write long winded edi torials that protection is a theory and unconstitutional. lu 181 G tho first free trade tariff was passed and at the same time silver was den onetized. Seven years .after that Henry Clay, a whig, and Thomas H. Benton, a democrat, describes the times, and our commerce was ruined, currency contracted, no market for the pro ducts of the farm, labor seeking employment and could not fiod it, wheat rottiug in the stacks aud in the granaries for the want of a market, the legislators passiug stay laws aud stop laws and the people loudly clamoring at the doors of state and national legisla tures for redress and could not find any. In 1S37, afte" the free trade tar iff of 1833 it was tue same and worse. The state of Michigan re pudiated her state debt; Indiana had au appraisment law by which they paid their debts iu old plows, carts, wagons and broken down horses. Every township had a board of appraisers. They would appraise these old traps away up and turn them over to the sheriff and that satisfied the debt. Sup pose Montana should pay off some of her • mortgages with horses, sheep, wool and silver at the price they were Worth when these debts were contracted. Everything the producer has to sell has shrunk in value from 50 to 100 per cent, but debts and money cost more than ever. The free traders of the present day put nie in mind of the copper heads during the war This Wil sot". Gorman tariff, or curse, is the most accursed conglomeration of absurdities ever passed by the American congress. It ueither protects nor furnishes revenue. But wo must wait till tho good time coming comes, when Wm. McKinley is the president and we will have no trouble any more. Then wc will have au American foreign policy. Yours Truly, Erastus G been.

The first recollections I have of myself is that one fine balmy morning about six years ago I found myseif on the grass on the sunny side of a hill, my mother standing over me, while a large number just like me, only u.ueh greater in size, were feeding near by. In a short time I got up onto my feet and, although my legs W(:rc weak and uusteady, I ambled aiong by the side of mother, who appeared to be very proud of me. One of the larger ones of my kind came up and bit my ear and began to make fun of me for being so small, when n. other, whose name was Mrs. Cayuse, kicked him and sa ' c ' t would be as big®as hundreds others when I grew up, if let alono - She showed me a lot more our kind, which she said were m y brothers and sisters, and when 1 asked her why they were not big li.ee the fellow who teased me, wa b es k uot 1:0 grow lar g° so our master would she too not j W0l ' k us ,lor ritk ' 10 death. i One day my speckled sister show j ed me a nice little yellow aud red j horse which she said was her fath cr, aud at night I showed him to :na and asked her why father did not eomo and see me, but she re plied that ho was not my father, which I did not understand when he was my sister's parent, until ina told me his name was Pinto, while mine was Nondescript. Well, foi* six years I have lived a fine life. I am nearly thirteen hands high (so mother says) and I am a beautiful black with large, irregular patches of white on the sides. I've got fjur white stock ing legs and ouo white ear, and ma says l'v : got glass eyes, but the old lady prevaricates sometimes, and uudoudtedly wants to make out that I am better than the rest of her children. I have lots of fun, for I have never had to work, except to dig snow off the grass and chase other horses when they come near us. When my master's hired man comes to drive us in I just give our crowd the wink and away we go about five miles, so that the mau has to ride a long way before he eau head us off and make us go down lo a round p'ia e that they call a corral. When we get there I say: "Come on boys, let's nave a race," and so don't notice the gate, but ruu past and fly for a big hill as fast as we can run. Golly, how the mau does kick and quirt the poor thiug he is ou, and how he does swear. Bye and bye we stop and he gets around us and drives us back. When we get nearly there we see a flock of sheep coming over the ridge, s > I forget the man wants us to go in, and charge on the sheep with all tie rest of my friends. My, how we scattered them, and I know 1 fixed three or four sure. 1 hate sheep anyway. Well, after a long i un tho man gets us in about dark, and he calls me vile names aud clubs ms with a big willow stick. Then he goes aud pickets tho poor borse he luis been riding, with a rope, where it cannot get half the grass it wants. So after dark I just slip out and I chew the rope in two and let him go. Then we take a long spin and hide in a deep coulee. Cracky, how the mau does cuss when he has to walk all the next day to find us. Then we have some more sport with him. At tine;* my master's wife lets her washing haug out over uight, and it is great fun to chew the nice, white things and stain thorn green with grass juice. Oue time I picked a pair of things off the liuc when 1 heard u aster's daughter cry out: ! "Oh, pa, that beast has -<ot my ! bloomers in his mouth." Of cotirae j I knew something would happ 11 ! and concluded to get out of daugcr, ' so rau away. But the first jump I stepped on oue limb of the bifurcat ed thiug when crack, rip, it went. Then I had oue bloom to chew and she one to wear. One is enough anyway I guess. Then 1 heard my master's wife say "John, why do you not sell or get rid of that piu U, nuisance. Ile has ruined fifty dollars worth of clothes at least." tojJohn, that's my master, replied: "Sell him, why nobody would take ii im as a gift, and if 1 kill him he is so cussed mean tho coyotes would not eat him, so what is the use so long as the range is over run with hundreds more just like him." That is the way the world used me. Master calls me a scrub and the hired man says u near relative of mine used to bark; but I am here to stay just the same. I don't like (he winters iu this country, for then wo have a barder time,getting food and chills run dow.j my legs, but we get along better than those things they call cows. One winter the snow got very deep and hard and the noses of tho cows were all sore and bloody and they looked awful thin and sad. It kept getting c lder all the time and the snow got deeper until we hu3 to rustle to keep our stomachs full. One day we found a nice patch of grass from which we dug and pawed all the snow and wero having a fine feed, when five or six head of cattle came up looking very eager at the sight of so much grass and which they began to help them selves to as if it belonged to them. We rushed at them with our ears laid back and drummed on their ribs with our hoels until they weut away and stood behind a pile of rocks watching us and making a mourn fui noise. Next day they were all dead. Mother, who is now old and wise, said they had starved to death and perished for tho want of a littie grass, but I think it was because they did not dig like wo did. Anyway I would sooner be n i small, live horse than a big, dead i three year-old steer, who was I afraid to fight and paw for a little grass. I felt kind of sorry for the poor things, bnt so long as I and so many more liko me are here, and the numbers increasing every year, we have got to look out for our selves, and I «111 bet we are always fat and satisfied, whether the cows live or die. I will gamble on the eayuse every time. Oh yes, I forgot to add that there are a whole'lotof young culls running around here, who irrever ently call me <"-dad" but I hare got uo use for them, they are such a "wooly, scraggy, piebald lot of scrubs. All they are fit for is to eat the grass and ieave less for us older ones. I do vol knot know what those cows ans going 10 do i after a while if we keep on inerea.s ! ing at this rate, but that is none of Jour funeral, so long as we getplen ! ly to eat. I One thiug troubles mc lately, ; however, and I have had a bad I dream or two also. Not to g 'ago I a strange man cauia riding out near i us with my master and looked at ! ua for a long time. They talked a i good deal, but I could only now and I then catch a word auch as etuis, (spiced ham, fancy label, corns J beef aud three dollars per head. Then he said something I think was iu thî Chinook language which sounded like "a butter," anyway 1 am sorry I did not bat him out} while I had a chaues I fear there lis a storm b -owing and an epidemic I of trouble coming. But then it ; will not do for me to get the blue«, i so to e.ilivon my spirits, I will just I bat that old one-horned cow a few I times in the ribs when sho tries to Iget some of this grass I have un covered. I have had pleuty my ! self, but for all that I do not pro j poso to paw and dig snow off of ; feed for any old boviuu with a Jan uary hump on her back. So here :goe*. Whack, slap, bang, taku : that will you ? Now go up and shiver by the rock pile and just re« memoer that I have got enough grass in my belly to feed two old I reprobates like vou. A bright, frosty nui-ning after i last night's storm finds me in ex cellent spirits ; but the old cow is jdead and stiff—starved to death. ' Ah, it is a fine thing to be a eay use, too small to work, ride or drive anil too inean to kill. The families of the Japautis«; who ifeJliu ti»e late campaign against \ China are most anxious to possess I some remains of their fleai reis j tives, however mutilated, In oue ' village tho friends of a deceased soldier solemnly brought back a J a I paper mau fastened to a real leg^ j the only portion which couid btf found afier the owner w<»s Irilind toy : a fihell.
